New Moon Meditation 7.45 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST), Friday 16 October 2020
A New Moon Meditation will be conducted by Dorte Moltsen at 7.45 pm (AEST), Friday, 16 October 2020. The new moon time is 6.31 am (AEST), Saturday, 17 October 2020.
Although there will not be any participants in physical attendance, you are most welcome to join in with this meditation and follow the format below in your rhythm, or you may choose another format.
The meditation below will be from the revised edition of The 17 Steps to Perfection, by Ananda Tara Shan* (Rev. Jeanne Dara De Murashkin) and Victoria (Annie Hasling).
The 17 Steps to Perfection is a meditation process that draws upon the qualities and energies of planets and the universe to help us connect with our soul, cleanse ourselves, become peaceful and harmonious, and, eventually, attain perfection. Although the revised edition is not yet published, the first edition is still available and has all the pre-revised versions of the meditations, which you are encouraged to use until the revised edition becomes available.
At the end of the meditation, there is an opportunity to write down the answers to any question you may have asked in the meditation. If you would like to, please feel free to have pen and paper handy.
1. Welcome and Introduction Welcome to this new moon meditation in which we connect with and celebrate the Mother aspect of the Divinity of God.
We will meditate on Minerva, who is the Mother of all wisdom. Minerva is the Roman name for the Greek goddess Pallas Athena, the Goddess of Truth and Wisdom.
She is a facet of the Diamond Tara - the Great Mother, and stands for the Power aspect of the Divine Feminine.
Minerva/Pallas Athena is the strength and the will of the warrior, along with the wisdom of the heart. She guides all who seek the truth.
She is also the goddess known as the 'spear-shaker', shaking the spear of truth at ignorance, glamour, and illusion.
Let us now prepare to meet the Mother of all wisdom.
2. Meditation We will now meditate on the energy of Minerva. The meditation is the Minerva advanced technique from The 17 Steps to Perfection, revised edition. 1

Song text: Inner Truth
To follow the Light or stay in the darkness of the night it’s something we must choose If our direction is clear we need not travel with fear to the heart of Truth
We travel so far to places of learning How near or how far our hearts are yearning for inner Truth (repeat)
It’s with your heart that you try when you look up to the sky to find the inner you And in time of despair it’s through our pain that we share but it’s something we must do
We have been there before but still we are yearning to open the doors though which we are learning Inner Truth (repeat)
5. Reading of the Great Invocation* Everyone: 'From the point of Light within the Mind of God, There appears Maitreya as the Son of the Sun. Let His Light stream forth into the minds of men, Let His Light stream forth on Earth. Redeemer, Thou hast come.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God, There comes Maitreya, the Lord of Love. Let His Love stream forth into the hearts of men, Christ the Risen One is here on Earth.
From the Centre where the Will of God is known, Let the Avatar of Synthesis guide the wills of men.
Maitreya, Your Purpose is clear. Avatar of Synthesis, make Yourself known.
We serve You, Masters of the Light. From the Centre which we call the race of men, Let the Plan of Love and Light work out, And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Maitreya restore the Plan on Earth.
Let His Light, Love, and Power be with you.'
*The Great Invocation as given by the Christ to the Lord D.K. has been rewritten by the Christ through Ananda Tara Shan*, making it more in keeping with the times.
5. Conclusion Thank you for your participation, and may you continue to be filled with the Light, Truth and Wisdom of Minerva.
*Ananda Tara Shan (1946-2002) is the Mother Founder of Heart Flow Worldwide and The Theosophical Fellowship.
